you are what you eat

Posted: January 21, 2011 in no comment, observations, people, rant

you are what you drive. you are where you live. tell me who your friends are, i’ll tell you who you are. etc etc.

why is this constant need to analyze people by their possessions/ food intake/ company/ cars/ brands, and all other things we do/own/ people we associate with. what is the need to label and judge and dissect. why cant we take people for what they are? accept them and not over analyze? does judging other people make us feel better about ourselves? coz we’re not focusing on our own downfalls? seriously, people are both fascinating and mindboggling.

stuff that grind my gears. short venting post.

    I do not think these are for categorizing. People like them because they just like talking about themselves…

    Human minds like to compartmentalise everything, otherwise taking people as they are – with their infinite variations – is too much for the brain to grasp and assign attitudes to.

      you may be right, but do they need to label and colour coordinate everything?? acceptance is not impossible. ppl like their comfort zones though.

    Mmmhmm. The human brain needs to classify and name things. After that, it’s difficult NOT to draw conclusions from data that coincides repeatedly.

    • Verbal Alchemy says:

      but arent we taught that generalizing is wrong and so is stereotyping? then why does it come natural to most (as ur saying here) to classify and name/label?? i reckon not everything that comes by nature is right. or else it would be chaotic, as instinct is sometimes anarchic and animalistic at other times.
